Question Mt Elbrus

Expedition

The twins’ tested the traditional clothing and equipment used by mountaineers around 100 years ago by climbing Mt Elbrus 5,642m (18,510ft), and compared it against today’s modern mountaineering equivalent. Starting from the north the route traversed the west peak and eventually reached the small settlement of Terskol to the south. King’s College London’s, Department of Twin Research and GlaxoSmithKline’s, Human Performance Lab conducted research to better understand the effects of high altitude on the human body.
